Arely Ayala’s Training 

Arely Ayala’s training routine will change depending on if she’s training for volume or definition. She trains six days a week and uses heavier weights with fewer reps when she’s training for size. If Ayala is cutting, she’ll train seven days a week and increase her time spent doing cardio.

She splits her workout into three days for the upper body and three days for the lower body when she trains six days a week during her bulking phase. And she’ll add glutes and shoulder exercises on the seventh day during her cutting phase. When she’s trying to put on size, Ayala performs three sets of 4-12 reps.
